Meal replacement shake recipes can be a great way to lose weight and get the right nutrition without having to pay the high price that comes with many commercial meal replacement shakes. Another benefit when you make these shakes at home from scratch is that you will get better nutrition because you are using fresh ingredients, instead of a product that has been sitting on the shelf for months. Many of these meal replacement shake recipes are delicious, and you will prefer them to high fat and unhealthy options. Make sure that any recipe you follow provides complete nutrition, including carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, protein, and even essential fatty acids. All of the shakes listed below will provide a nutritional meal replacement while being delicious at the same time. You will need a blender, so that you can blend all of the ingredients together. Combine all of the ingredients for each recipe except any ice in the blender and then blend together until smooth. Add any ice required and blend again.
